"Clothe thyself in the garment of nothingness
and drink the cup of self-annihilation."

-Attar, 12th C. Persian poet
Here, 'nothingness' does not imply a wasteland,
but means the absence of thought,
of the object/subject duality.
And 'self-annihilation' means dissolution of the ego,
not suicide.

Painting by ContemporaryIranian Artist, Farah Ossouli,
who has reinvented traditional Persian miniature painting.
